Recovery is a spiritual process and step three is when the doors of hope, faith, and trust are opened. The essence of step three is turning over your will, getting out of the way, and being restored to reality, honesty, and peace of mind.
When working on step three we take a look at how acting on self-will means behaving without any consideration for others, focusing only on what we want and ignoring the needs and feelings of others. While we were busy pursuing these impulses, we mostly left a path of destruction behind us, and we definitely lost touch with our Higher Power.
The exact wording of Step 3 is:
Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
